Detailed walkthroughEdit

However, all of them follow the same fairly simple pattern of "talk to the settlement leader, clear the raiders from the location given, talk to the settlement leader again, talk to Preston Garvey".

If this quest is given directly by a settler, and you have not yet joined the Minutemen, the player character will not mention the usual Minuteman dialogue, but may instead say "I'd be glad to help, if I can." This can also occur with Clearing the Way, Ghoul Problem and Greenskins.


PCIcon pc Playstation 4Icon ps4 The option to say that the targeted location has been previously cleared won't appear, along with the quest marker, preventing the quest completion. Clearing the location anyways won't fix this. [verified]

  • This can be fixed by running setstage 0003DF95 200 in the console.
